Harissa Paste
« on: November 06, 2019, 12:06:16 PM »

Not the Labour backbencher, the foodstuff. I don't trust it. Have bought a few tubes and thrown out after a year.
It just tastes of rancid oil and metal tube, doesn't it? Haven't been willing to sacrifice an entire dish to find out if that is true.

What is a simple way to experience the brilliance of harissa?

It's just a hot chilli paste. Smear some on some chicken and grill it.

Yeah, boil some new potatoes, drain 'em, couple of squeezes of harissa paste in the pan, stir about. Job done.

I've never seen it in tubes, only small cans.

Homemade, Otterlengthy’s recipe:

Put a red pepper under your grill until it’s totally black all over (turn it every now and then).
Leave it to cool totally. Then peel the skin and discard the seeds.
While pepper’s cooking, fry a chopped red onion, with some garlic and chillis. Add a teaspoon of caraway seed and a tablespoon of coriander and cumin seeds.

Blitz the onion mixture and the pepper with lemon juice, seasoning and plenty of olive oil.

I have the less lazy but still quite lazy Harissa spice mix which you simply add oil to in order for it to paste the fuck up. It's fairly effective, less costly than buying it premixed in a jar and it lasts longer.

As for the flavour, get gassed if you don't like it. I've got some gas you can use for the task of gassing yersen, just ask.

I make a nice chickpea and roasted aubergine stew where you add a couple of teaspoons of harrissa to the tomatoe base for some spice. I get mine in a fancy little jar from Waitrose.

Oh yeah also add a bit of smoked paprika and smoked rapeseed oil to the mix, works a charm if you detest smoked things and want to make yourself vomit, or alternatively love smoked things and wish to luxuriate in every mouthcranny of the flavour journey.

Harissa in metal tubes? I've only ever seen it in glass jars, or as dry spice mix you have to make into a paste by adding oil and crushed garlic. I prefer the latter form, it lasts longer and the Seasoned Pioneers brand with branding design which  makes the little foil packets look like they come from a head shop are the best.

Putting it on chicken is weird and wrong though, put it on a leg of lamb instead, serve with mange tout steamed with mint and parsnips roasted in cumin, cor vat is laaaahverly

Pretty common in North African restaurants to get a tube of harissa paste (or similar equivalent) as a condiment.

I must seek out a north African restaurant in Edinburgh then. Went to a great South African restaurant for my birthday but no harissa there of course, just had a lovely steak and me being forced to conclude that gangbangers, you've got to love 'em.

CaB has, yet again, reminded me that I need to buy some more harissa. I bought some the last time you reminded me of it, and it was really good. Top-tier condiment.

If it doesn't taste good smear on some Swinson. Then it will say it tastes just fine, and that it will be the next PM.

I heard smears were going to become obsolete
